The geological formation of the Castelpapal vineyards is the result of various upheavals dating back to the secondary and tertiary eras. Thus we find here terroirs corresponding to distinct geological formations. We can distinguish at least five of them:The pebbles rolled on red clay, such as those found on the famous Crau plateau;The sandy areas which are generally found on the breaks in the plateau. These are atypical terroirs, like Rayas, but where Grenache acquires a great deal of finesse;Pebbles on a subsoil of blue clay, which is totally impermeable;A gravelly-silted area located towards the Sorgues part, in the south of the appellation;Limestone outcrops found in several places in the appellation.Whether it comes from a single type of terroir or a blend, a great Châteauneuf is a wine that combines power and elegance, with great ageing potential, and that transforms over the years its youthful richness and opulence into a remarkably fine and complex wine.
